Awesome Sketches

Conversing with Aliens in Star Wars

Conversing with Aliens in Star Wars

(PG-13: Language) Conversations between humans and aliens date back to the very first Star Wars movie. This hilarious comedy sketch from Wizards with Guns pokes fun at the trope by imagining what might happen if one of those creatures spoke a language nobody could understand without reading the subtitles.

Mr. Doodle Doodles His House

Mr. Doodle Doodles His House

Pop artist Mr. Doodle turned his entire house into a canvas. Between September 2020 and September 2022, he covered virtually every surface inside and out with his black and white doodles. Along the way, he used more than 900 liters of white paint, 401 cans of black spray paint, and 286 bottles of black ink, and 2296 pen nibs.

What Meetings Sound Like to Interns

What Meetings Sound Like to Interns

If you’ve ever had to sit through a corporate conference call, you can probably relate to Nicholas T.’s comedy sketch. It roasts the kind of bureaucratic double-speak, buzzword bingo, and nonsensical tech talk that often fills the air. Seriously, why can’t most meetings be an e-mail? (Thanks, Rob!)

NPCs Every Time You Say Something to Them

NPCs Every Time You Say Something to Them

One of the most annoying mechanics in RPGs and adventure games is how NPCs send you on ridiculous side missions in order to give you something you need to progress through the main storyline. RDCworld1 pokes fun at this irritating cliché as a player attempts to get some armor and a sword they need to level up.

Sketching with Fire

Sketching with Fire

Chinese artist 超哥的烧火棍 aka “Super Brother’s Fire Stick” shows how he creates a mural using a flaming stick of wood as his medium. We’re assuming he moves quickly and frenetically so as not to burn himself. Be sure to watch until the end for the reveal.

The First Couple to Ever Move in Together

The First Couple to Ever Move in Together

“You know what I think is missing from this relationship? House chores.” The idea of moving in with someone might sound good in concept, but reality can be a lot less awesome. Ryan George and Julie Nolke remind us what living together is really like in this hilarious and relatable comedy sketch. And then there’s getting married.

The Kids in the Hall (Red Band Trailer)

The Kids in the Hall (Red Band Trailer)

(PG-13) After leaving TV in 1995, the sketch comedy geniuses The Kids in the Hall are back. Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson return for 8 new episodes on Amazon Prime. Expect humor that’s sure to offend those with milder sensitivities, plus guest spots from comedy greats.

Gen-Z Kids as Parents

Gen-Z Kids as Parents

With their heads down on their phones watching 15-second TikTok videos and trading NFTs, Gen-Z kids are growing very differently than we did. Comedian Matt Colbo hilariously imagines what life will be like when they grow up and have their own kids that they don’t understand.

PIPNIC

PIPNIC

Pip Ketchip and Nic Musterd are friends. One day, they stop to enjoy lunch outdoors and strike up a conversation about tap water, bicycles, vacuum cleaners, and bear attacks. And then The Fuzz turns up. Real Big Boys knocked it out of the park with their comedy sketch about homophones.

When You Don’t Skip the Ads

When You Don’t Skip the Ads

We know they help support content creators, but we’re as guilty as anyone of skipping the ads on YouTube after five seconds. But what exactly happens after that point in the pre-roll? Comedy Central’s truly warped video delves into the mystery of what lies beyond. And no, you can’t click “Skip Ad” no matter how hard you try.

When an Alien Speaks but Doesn’t Have Subtitles

When an Alien Speaks but Doesn’t Have Subtitles

Have you ever watched a movie and an alien starts talking in their native tongue, but no subtitles come on screen? Are they saying something critical to the story? Is Closed Captioning turned off? Joel Haver and Brandon Dester sum up the feeling of confusion that comes with scenes like that in this animated comedy sketch.

Sweetlegs: X-Men Apocalypse

Sweetlegs: X-Men Apocalypse

“Some of the best kills that I have ever seen… and that ain’t bad for a PG-13.” With a Rotten Tomatoes score of 47%, X-Men Apocalypse wasn’t exactly the best of the franchise. Sweetlegs’ rap about watching the movie while hungover reminds us of some of its more redeeming qualities.

Stop Making New Oreos

Stop Making New Oreos

(PG-13: Language) Oreo cookies are perfectly delicious all on their own, so why do we need alternative Oreo flavors like carrot cake, candy corn, and java chip? College Humor takes a jab at the cookie company introducing an endless stream of strange and unnecessary variants.

You Can’t Fight a Guy with a Baby

You Can’t Fight a Guy with a Baby

In this classic sketch from Key & Peele, a guy bumps into another guy on the playground and gets into an altercation. But will the baby that he’s carrying be a help or a hindrance as he takes on his foe? Click play and find out.

What Corporate People Sound Like

What Corporate People Sound Like

If you’ve been subjected to working in a big company, you know that people can get way too caught up in using corporate lingo, especially management executives who like to use big words and do lots of PowerPoint presentations. Tripp and Tyler’s video completely nails what this jargon sounds like to the rest of us.

Stray Man

Stray Man

(PG-13: Language) In this silly sketch from Aunty Donna’s Netflix series Big Ol’ House of Fun, housemate Mark decides to take in a stray he found wandering around outside. But it’s not a dog or a cat, this is a full-grown man. Fortunately, Antony Starr is a bit more docile here than as Homelander on The Boys.

Kevin James: Gone Fishin’

Kevin James: Gone Fishin’

“You want Earth? You can just take it.” After a fisherman is abducted by aliens, he explains to his captors how screwed up our planet is and how it’s not really worth their effort. Kevin James‘ short film offers a comedic but occasionally profound look at humans can be simultaneously the worst and the best things ever.

HoHos: The Big Turnaround

HoHos: The Big Turnaround

Ali Ali’s silly commercial envisions a world where Egyptian bakery company Edita is struggling to move its HoHos snack cakes, and how one clever employee comes up with a simple design change to send sales through the roof. We wonder what these could these guys do to sell more Twinkies.

What Was I Going to Say?

What Was I Going to Say?

An ordinary guy loses his train of thought during a marketing meeting, then slips into a deep funk as he struggles to remember his point. Kevin James‘ and the Kinnane Brothers‘ short film does a great job turning an everyday occurence into something far more dramatic than it should be.

Lunch with Daniel Day-Lewis

Lunch with Daniel Day-Lewis

Kevin James’ Sound Guy character has been a favorite since he first came on the scene. In this clip the oblivious film crew member takes a little lunch break on the set of There Will Be Blood, and of course he has to share his milkshake with Daniel Day-Lewis. Bonus points for the Paul Thomas Anderson voice cameo.

Breaking Up

Breaking Up

A couple finds themselves having difficulty connecting while quarantined apart, as they struggle to figure out if it’s their relationship that’s falling apart, or just their internet connection. Dogfood’s sketch offers a humorous look at one of the many challenges of dating in today’s world.

Kevin James: CouchX

Kevin James: CouchX

We’ve all found ourselves glued to the couch and unable to get up without major effort. Comedian Kevin James imagines the process of emerging from couch potato mode as a major achievement on par with sending astronauts into space. 3… 2… 1… lift-off (the tab from your beer can.)

Out of Touch

Out of Touch

Two men find themselves at the wrong end of the long arm of the law. As they make a break for it into the woods, they question the decision that changed everything. Kevin James continues to prove his sketch comedy chops with perfect use of dramatic tension and a solid punchline. Filmed by the Kinnane Brothers.

They Died Peacefully

They Died Peacefully

There’s nothing funny about dying. But that didn’t stop Dogfood from making this seriously morbid comedy sketch that makes fun of people who try to find something positive to say when they found out a friend lost a loved one.

SNL: Grocery Store Ad

SNL: Grocery Store Ad

If there’s one universal experience we’ve all shared during the coronavirus lockdown, it’s that grocery stores can’t keep high demand and essential items in stock. This hilarious fake commercial from SNL invites customers to buy some of the items that they can count on being in stock.

The Universe App

The Universe App

Carl is having a bad week at work, so his buddy recommends a new app to install on his phone to help him meditate and relieve some of the tension. The punchline in Kevin James’ comedy short film literally made us spit out our coffee, though it did also remind us a bit of a recent Rick and Morty episode.
